Tony Fisher, our Senior Partner at Fisher Jones Greenwood, has been awarded the Lifetime achievement award at the Modern Law Awards, hosted in London last week.
The prestigious national awards celebrate and identify sparkling talent and best practice in the modern legal services arena and are the perfect opportunity for the sector to showcase and set the benchmarks for best practice in the ever diverse, challenging and exciting landscape for the business of law.
The lifetime award recognised Tony’s tireless enthusiasm for the legal profession, rule of law and access to justice and the impact that his work has had on thousands of individuals, students, lawyers and the general public, particularly those of modest means.
Karl Chapman, the CEO of Riverview Law who presented the award to Mr Fisher, said “There is no one more humble and deserving of such and award which I am really proud to present”
The awards also paid tribute to his passion for human rights and his work in that field that has seen him appear as an advocate at the European Court of Human Rights. He has also been influential in the release of lawyers imprisoned abroad having communicated with the governments of: China, Egypt, Nigeria, Turkey, Iran and more.
After the awards, Tony commented, “I’m very grateful to receive this award and didn’t know it was going to happen, but I’m not accepting it just for me. It’s for all the brave lawyers out there in other countries who are doing such incredible things in such difficult circumstances”.
